Caroline Esinam Adzogble, a 26-year-old Ghanaian entrepreneur, famous for being the youngest African to run and own an accredited college has disclosed intention to sponsor 120 African needy but brilliant students with a full scholarship to study in some international universities.
The founder of Potters International College launched the scholarship scheme through her Mercy Heart Foundation.
Known as the Caroline Excellence Awards, the scheme will award $1M worth of partial and full scholarships to 100 well deserving and brilliant but needy African students each year.
Basically, the initiative will enable Senior High School students and high school graduates with good academic background but no funds the opportunity to further their education at the tertiary level.
The scholarship can be redeemed for Spring, Summer and Fall enrollment seasons each year.
Caroline Esinam Adzogble noted that she looks forward to increasing the number of scholarship awards and partners each year.
For now, students from all African countries can apply though priority will be given to students based in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Rwanda, Uganda, Togo, Senegal, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia.
Tuition Scholarships range from 20% – 100% and students will gain guaranteed admission to the following partner universities;
American University of Malta
National College of Ireland
University of Nicosia
Webster University Ghana recently joined the awards scheme to give 20 scholarships, bringing the total number of beneficiaries for this year to 120.
Adzogble maintained that her main goal as an entrepreneur is to advance and uplift education in Africa making it easily accessible to all.
She said, “My ethos as an entrepreneur is to uplift Education within Africa and beyond and to make it the most affordable and accessible to all.
She added, “My only fulfilment comes from knowing that students who couldn’t get to school due to financial barriers will finally have the opportunity to go to school and pursue their dreams in the long run."
“I look forward to increasing the number of scholarship awards and partners each year to reach more deserving students as Education is a right and not a Privilege,” Adzogble said.
Applications will be open from now till December 20, and can only be submitted through the “Admission in 30minutes” App available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store or through the scheme’s website.
On January 13, 2019, winners will be announced and Adzogble will begin a tour on January 21, 2019, to award all the recipients in their various countries.
